AAHomecare adds videos to campaign toolbox

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

WASHINGTON – AAHomecare has made available for sharing three videos through its Save My Medical Supplies campaign.

The short videos, available at www.savemymedicalsupplies.org, help to educate Medicare beneficiaries, families and caregivers about how Medicare problems can impact them, according to a release.

The first video is an overview of major issues related to Medicare reform. The second: an interview with Thomas Morris, a beneficiary with diabetes and an amputee, that highlights issues related to the national mail-order program for diabetes supplies. The third: an interview with Bert Burns, a Paralympian, that highlights issues with wheelchair repairs.

“These issues aren’t partisan, they’re personal,” said Tom Ryan, president and CEO of AAHomecare in the release. “Please take a moment to share these videos with your personal network.”

Save My Medical Supplies uses email, social media and online resources to reach consumers and make it easier for them to contact Congress to support H.R. 1717, a bill to replace the competitive bidding program with a market-pricing program. Since its April 1 kickoff, more than 3,000 letters have been generated.
